2019-20 : P@andora by Sarah Berthiaume
– Pandora : young woman, age 16 to 18 (lead)
– FireFox / Alex : young man, age 16 to 18
Synopsis : The story follows 16 year-old Pandora as she begins to navigate the world of dating. One day in the bathroom, a mysterious figure hands her a lighter embossed with the website foxylady.com. Unable to resist, she types it into her web browser and embarks on a disturbing journey through the surreal realm of cyber-porn. Conflicted by what she sees, Pandora realizes the dangers of defining oneself through the prism of the internet, and the importance of remaining plugged into the real world.
2020-21 : The Kissing Game by Rhiannon Collett
– Sam : young woman, age 16 to 18 (lead)
Synopsis : Kate and Sam are best friends, but there’s a tension building in their relationship. When Kate’s sister falls victim to an act of violence, they are determined to bring the perpetrator to justice. On a summer evening, their actions tear a hole in reality as the assailant’s heart falls out of his chest and onto the pavement, just as it begins to snow. Their relationship crumbles in the aftermath and the girls are left to question whether any of us are truly worthy of forgiveness.
